What should I watch on Prime Video?
Here are five TV shows and movies we think you should watch on Prime Video, in order of their release in Australia.
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby – August 1
This NASCAR-themed comedy (by Ferrell and his host collaborator Adam McKay) has a fairly tight plot, which goes against the direction of the movie at the time. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby Seeing Ferrer play a dim but fearless All-American racer whose confidence is shaken when a gay Frenchman (Sasha Barron Cohen) beats him to track supremacy. When Ferrer returns to work with the help of his rogue father Gary Cole, Talladega night More or less turned into a straight-up sports movie that hits all the optimism without being crazy enough.
The Great Gatsby – August 3
New to Prime Video this month is the great gatsby. Baz Luhrmann’s visually dazzling (albeit divisive) adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel is a cinematic wonder, no matter how you slice it. If you’re not familiar, author and Wall Street trader Nick Callaway (Tobey Maguire) finds himself drawn to his millionaire neighbor Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). It was synonymous with the glamorous (and rich) life of the 1920s, not the real American dream.

Seven strangers from all walks of life are forced to work together to renovate an abandoned community center.
